Germany’s Heuking posts 10 per cent turnover rise

German independent Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek has announced the strongest 2010 revenue rise of any European firm to date, posting an increase of 10 per cent.

The firm turned over €87.5m (£74.1m) for the 2010 financial year, compared to €79.5m in 2009. 

In November Heuking announced it was promoting four lawyers to partner and an additional 10 to the role of salaried partner. The firm also hired two partners for its Frankfurt office and two for its Munich office in January.

Last week Heuking unveiled a non-exclusive collaboration with Brazilian firm Veirano Advogados (11 February 2011).

Managing partner Andreas Urban said Heuking was “prepared for future growth”.

At the end of 2010, the firm employed more than 220 lawyers in its nine offices, which are spread across Germany, Switzerland and Belgium.
